Holi Hungama is a Hindu Festival that celebrates culture and color. I went to this festival after learning about this from my friend Arjun. He’s the Co-President of the Hindu Student Council, and I offered to work with him at making this event great. You see, I’m the President of the Visual Arts Council of Majors (VisCOM). We helped to design some of the promotional material. One of my members, Brigit, designed the banner that you might have seen in the commons along with the tickets, and she also came up with the original concept for this flier.
We had a little bit of of a rough start, as this was one of the first designs we created for another group on campus. But, I wanted to express my thankfulness publicly for two reasons:
1. I’m very grateful for the opportunity that Arjun, Brigit, and the rest of our respective organizations (and partnering organizations) gave us.
2. Holi Hungama was not only educational and enriching, as Dr. Hrabowski mentioned at the event, but it allowed us to truly form the foundation for further collaborative projects.
Holi Hungama had it’s third annual event this spring, with 11 organizations that they have been working with, some from outside the UMBC community! VisCOM was able to help the Hindu Student Council create a film, too, since we have a good relationship with UMBC Filmmakers Anonymous. (If you’re interested in learning more about any of these groups, let me know by sending me an E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Overall, the ballroom was filled with happy students, and the night turned out great!
